Strawberry & Banana Yogurt Ice Lollies

Strawberry & Banana Yogurt Ice Lollies

Have you been enjoying this very long spell of gorgeous weather so far this Summer? I bet you have. I don’t know about you but I have been trying to find ways to keep us cool in variety of ways one of them being ice lollies. This super simple recipe for Strawberry & Banana Yogurt Ice Lollies have been firm favourite so far maybe due to familiarity and simplicity of flavours, we all love them! Homemade ice lollies are a winner in my book especially that they take no time at all to prepare plus you know exactly what’s in them (no artificial colours or preservatives here) plus you can make them exactly as you like them, you are in control.

Strawberry & Banana Yogurt Ice Lollies

I use my old and trusty stick blender to blitz all the ingredients together but if you are a proud owner of fancy NutriBullet* you can of course use it instead. You are not pureeing anything frozen here so standard power stick blender will definitely suffice. Blitz, pour into the moulds and freeze! It doesn’t get any easier than that. The most difficult part is in fact waiting for them to be frozen… I found that 3 hours was the quickest time in which these lollies were ready but it may depend on your freezer and the size of lolly moulds you are using.

I decided to add some yogurt to these lollies as we are real dairy fanatics in our house plus I wanted that extra added goodness and some calcium too! You can easily leave the yogurt out if you want and make these dairy free increasing the amount of fruit as you please. To make these vegan simply use agave nectar in place of honey and use dairy free yogurt. Make sure you give the mixture a little taste test before you pour them into the moulds in case you’d prefer a touch more honey etc.

Both recipes make the most of fresh strawberries and are simply to die for!

    Having just got back from a long camping trip and my kids eating their body weight in ice cream I’m definitely giving these lollies a try. Aside from being a lot healthier they look and sound delicious!

    We’ve been having wiltingly hot weather lately, so the couple of days we’re currently having with highs of 75ΒΊ feel like a dream. These look like the perfect, healthy snack for the kiddosβ€”especially with your brilliant addition of yogurt! I’ll be sure to have these in the holster for when the usual summer weather returns!

      Thanks Michelle! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you like the addition of yogurt! These would be just fine without it but I wanted to bulk the mixture up a bit plus give it a little extra creaminess (not mentioning a bit of calcium) and it worked really well. These are so wonderfully cooling in this heat!
